This is our national motto and on all of our coins but what does it mean? No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense. We trust in Him. He is the Supreme being. It has been on coins since about 1864 and adopted as the national motto in 1956. Proverbs 18:10 tells us "The name of God is a strong tower and the righteous run to it and are safe." The name of God and Jesus scares Satan and those that follow him. Evil forces have been trying to remove God out of everything. There is good in the world and evil. There is God and there is Satan. Nothing in between. You are either for God or against Him. It is amazing to me the onslaught of anti Christian voices in our world today trying to remove God from the public arena when that is how this country was founded. All I can say is 'unbelievable'!
There is no doubt that evil forces are at work to try to remove God and his name from the United States of America. There is power in a Christian nation. The founders came here so they could openly worship the Lord Jesus Christ. I find it odd that this country was founded that way and people who do not like it try to remove God when in my opinion if they do not like this great land then move on to somewhere and leave our Christian nation alone. Not saying that to be mean but we have a unique system of government based upon the scriptures. There is no disputing that. Satan does not like things of the Lord so his henchmen come along and try to ruin this land for everyone else. The word of God is removed from the public square and even laws made to protect the Bible are used against it. It is bizarre how things have turned around. People are being 're-educated' to believe the nation was not founded on Christian principles and to even fabricate a new meaning to the church and state clause. We are taught to tolerate religions some of which are out to destroy Americans they call 'infidels'.
Back in pioneer days the boys and girls read the Bible to practice their reading. You would not see that in classrooms today. Prayer was offensive so someone took it all the way to the Supreme Court and got it removed from school. The Ten Commandments were next. There have been battles to try to remove 'In God We Trust' from the money.People sue to keep valedictorians from saying anything about God in their graduation speeches. Even at a recent sporting event, The US Open, NBC TV omitted 'under God' from the pledge of allegiance. Coincidence or intentional? Who is to know. But the name of God is offensive to evil forces who want nothing to do with Jesus. To non believers it is like fingernails on a chalkboard. Those of you old enough can identify with that horrible squeaking sound.
Our own President once declared we are no longer "just a Christian nation" and often times omits the word 'creator' from the Declaration of Independence. This is a slippery slope to be walking on taking God away. Many Scriptures warn about the outcome of that. Psalm 33:12 says "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance." If we keep cutting Him out of the public arena He will not continue to bring blessings upon this land. First Supreme Court Justice John Jay (served from 1789 to 1795) said “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” Wow you do not hear that much today now do you?
America is fast running away from our creator and leaving God out and by this welcoming Satan and his demonic forces in. Marriage which is to be held in sacred honor between a man and a woman is now being redefined to say two men can marry and two women can marry.That is not what my Bible says. Immoral lifestyles like this are being protected by laws! If a young person wants to escape this lifestyle heor she is told they were born this way and ridiculed thus getting sucked deeper and deeper into the deception and lies. When a nation turns its head on killing innocent babies in the womb we have gone too far. The Bible is being reinterpreted to suit the needs of its readers at the time.
Proverbs 29:25 says "Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe." This country is thumbing its nose at God and his laws and thankfully we still have the freedom to worship and read our Bibles in public but do not fall asleep as it could be taken away too.
The all familiar verse of 2 Chronicles 7:14 is being preached but are we doing what it says" if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." This land needs healed in a bad way. You can not continue to remove God from the land and expect it to prosper. America we have to get serious about prayer!
We can not continue to be blessed when our own leaders deny God and even do not allow National Day of Prayer to be celebrated. What is happening America? This is not about a Republican or Democrat but this is about the freedom to proclaim Jesus is Lord over the United States of America. We are free to worship as God gave us those freedoms and man is trying to remove them and put us under bondage to government more each day.
Psalm 37:7-9 says "Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed,but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land."
Remember daily to pray for this great nation and its' leaders. I have shared it before but will share it again and that is the website for the presidential prayer team out of Scottsdale, Arizona and it is http://www.presidentialprayerteam.org/. You will find many helpful tools to help you pray with a heart like God for those in authority over us.
2 Corinthians 3:17 says "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." I have attached another praise song below. Listen to it in free time and your assignment is to read Deuteronomy 28 about what happens when a nation follows God and what happens when a nation turns its back on God. Be blessed.
PRAYER: Father this great land was founded on you but the enemy is coming in and using people to try to destroy and change the fabric of America. Many are deceived and do not see this happening. Father we pray for those leaders who you have allowed to be in office. Father we ask that you change the hearts of any with evil intent to destroy this great land and turn them from evil to good. This country needs you back on the throne again. In Jesus Name, Amen!
